God. It's 2022, and rereading this still has me in tears. I first read this in 2009 if I can recall correctly. I love Rosie, always have and always will. She's the epitome of a good OC that's normal enough to not outshine the cast, but special enough to make her role just a little more important. And Squall, oh my god. He's so much more than he is in-game, with Rinoa. He has feelings, and troubles, and such a fighting spirit to do what it takes. His growth has been so real and gradual, unlike the weird random spikes of characterization during disc 3 and onward. I love that you have them both acknowledge with guilty consciences that their feelings for each other have doomed the world.
The remaster has been out for a few years now, and every time I play it or think of FFVIII, I think back to this fic that made me fall in love with Squall and the story and the world that the original writers and producers didn't have the appropriate time to expand on. Thank you for being a treasure amongst this little fandom, for putting your time and love and effort into these words that have left such a lasting impact on me, and I'm sure on several others.
I hope you're doing well, and that life is kind to you. Maybe one day, we will see the resolution of this jewel. Until then, I patiently await with open arms.

Just reread this again. And still thoroughly enjoyed every moment. It’s fun to revisit this one every few years. Even if it never gets a formal wrap up... you done good, kid.

It's been many years since I last read this story. Got a bit nostalgic during the week with the FF7 remake coming out I decided to replay FF8. Got me thinking about this story I read an age ago. Did not disappoint to re-read again!
Rosie may cry a heck of a lot but dang nibbit do I love her and her friendship with everyone. Squall's attitude was noted down to a T and the battle description on poiint.
You may never get back to writting, but that's okay life happens, I'll just say I will always love this story and remember it dearly from my youth.. I ain't old but I read this when I was like 16 ahahaha

I first read this ten years ago (I think) and I'm pretty sure I left a review once or twice. Coming back now in 2019, this fic is still just as amazing as it was when I first read it. The level of realism in Rosie's character as well as the original way of using the GFs to mixing Rosie to be a consequence of her own actions in interfering with the plot, it's all so amazing. I can't even describe just how much this fic has influenced me and my writing. There are a bunch of typos, and I can see when you accidentally typed in Spanish instead, but it barely detracted my attention from the feelings and scenes you were conveying, and that's so talented.
I know you haven't updated this fic in years, but I do hold out hope you will come back one day and finish this, especially since it's almost over in terms of the plot, and because FFVIII remaster is coming out!
Until then, whether its next year or in fifty years, I'll still come back to reread from time to time to experience the magic of this fic again!

I wish to see the ending of this fic. I really love it.. too bad it's been abandoned for years now.
| Guest chapter 71 . 8/4/2017
It's been so long! I hope you're alright. I wish you'd update, the story is so very close to ending and I'd be really sad if I didn't get to see what will happen in the end :(

raven-haired... is awkward it should be raven(-)haired girl/youth/woman.
I've (only) played (the) whole (game/thing)...
that kind of movie or those kinds of movies...
raised watch not watch, raised.
couple of inches, (as she was)...
brown orbs (that) were...
because the (last) thing Rosie wanted...
not -a thunder boomed- just thunder boomed...
I love Rosie's mom's name and your English is pretty good for it not being your primary language. I look forward to the next chapter that I'll read later today.
